Type O blood donors urgently needed nationwide


The South Bend Medical Foundation says they are in urgent need of Type O blood donors.

Wednesday they said both their O+ and O- inventories are at a dangerously low level, a situation that’s a nationwide problem.

Walk-in donations are welcome but appointments are preferred. You can learn more by clicking here. You can also call 574-234-1157 to set up an appointment.


  1. I am 0- blood type (a universal donor) and they won’t take my blood. I used to donate every 56 days. A number of years ago the SBMF said that I had Hepatitis C and could no longer donate. Testing PROVED that I didn’t have Hepatitis of any type and never did, but they refuse to let me donate. Their loss!!!
